Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let New Jersey Off the Beaten Path show you the Garden State you never knew existed. Visit Fort Nonsense in Morristown and find out why the locals named it after George Washington’s nonsense; ride on the Black River & Western Railroad in Phillipsburg; ride high at the Cowtown Rodeo in Woodstown; or stand beneath Lucy the Elephant, a six-story wonder of sheet metal, in Margate City. So if you’ve “been there, done that” one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path.
